Conference time…

While far more important things are happening in the world (like Spain meeting The Netherlands in the World Cup Final), I am going south for a couple of conferences.

The first is in Melbourne, starting tomorrow night and going till Sunday. It is called Engaging the Basis, and aims to “provide an opportunity for scholarly discussion, debate and exchange of ideas about the theological responsibilities of the UCA and the particular theological commitments of the Basis of Union“.

Then, with friends Michelle Cook and Geoff Thompson, I’m stopping off in Sydney on the way back for a second conference on Monday and Tuesday: Sarah Coakley and the Future of Systematic Theology. She is an Anglican priest who teaches theology at Harvard. I’m prepared to have my mind stretched at this one…

Back on Wednesday!

    Great to meet you at the Basis conference. Looking forward to sharing with my twelves a little of the conversation about the Trinity. Think after Chris’ paper they might need to dig a bit more into Barth’s christology as a response to the rise of atheism. Big stuff for 17 year old brains (as well as for 43 yo also!)
